Happy Hip Hop!!!!
Are you ready for another fun Hop?? Well, get ready, as the Unity and the Ippity DT is bringing you another amazing hop today with full of eye candy! But before you hop along, I have a fun little tutorial for you. Remember my little bird house???
So, how would you like to make one of these????? Well, here is what you need to make it:
Silhouette bird house cutting file (yes, you will need a Silhouette cutting machine for it.
Cardstock: Georgia Pacific
Patterned Paper: Pink Paislee
Sweet Thoughts of Spring
What Matters Most
Ink: Memento, Ranger Distress, Powderpuff
Helmar Craft Glue
So, first you need to cut out your little bird house template and here is what it will look like. I also scored all the lines, event hough they were already perforated by my Silhouette machine.
Than I scored my roof piece, which I cut out of plain white cardstock, as I was going to cover it with the scallops anyway.
In the next step I built my little bird house and glued it together everywhere except on the bottom, just in case I want to put something inside. For this I used Helmar's Craft Glue.
Next I stamped my scallops on the Pink Paislee patterned paper using Ranger Distress ink and cut them out individually. In all fairness after looking at my finished project, you can really just keep stamping on top of each other and just cut out one big roof, instead of the individual scallops..but, I had to do it the hard way...LOL
Next I glued all the scallops on top of my roof piece. And again, I used Helmar's Craft Glue, because it is the best quick drying liquid glue out there.
Next I inked up all the edges of my little house using Ranger Distress inks.
Finally I just had to assemble the house and the roof again with my Helmar Craft glue. And this is what my finished little bird house looked like before adding all the decorations. Cute, huh???
After this, I just added all the stamping. For this tutorial, I wanted to focus on the little house building with the scallop roof top, so I don't have photos of the rest, as that was just stamping and cutting out, but here is what the final product looked like.
And that is it.....hope you like this little tutorial. I love making cards, but once in a while it's good to play with something other than a card. In fact today I am going to make a layout using Ippity stamps...as Ippity is sponsoring the VSBN this weekend on Splitcoaststampers, so if you would like some fun scrapbooking challenges, make sure you stop in to have some fun!
